Course Description

Earnings per share (EPS) is a popular and useful measure of a company’s profit performance. Companies with publicly held common stock or potential common stock must disclose their EPS information.  EPS tells you how much profit (or loss) each share of common stock has earned after adjustments for potential dilution from options, warrants, and convertible securities are factored in. This course covers the computation, reporting, presentation, and disclosure requirements associated with EPS as stipulated in ASC 260 Earnings Per Share. It includes excerpts from and references to ASC 260, and interpretive guidance. It also provides examples to illustrate the application. Finally, it includes insights from the Securities and Exchange Commission staff.
